Eric’s Fly In

Eric and Ashley Donaldson hosted a fly in on Thursday. Earlier in the week Eric had mowed a super cool design into his field (our front yard – very convenient). You can see some bird’s eye photos of the field in the short video. Thursday, conditions called for northeast, but lightening to calm to no winds by the end of the day. So, some pilots headed up to launch at about 6pm. The goal of the flight (besides having fun) was to land closest to the spot. Lucas, Eric, James, Carl, Keith, Marc Fink, Fingers, Ron, Pete, and Kurt all went for it.Everyone came close and had beautiful approaches and landings with only one whack in thegroup. Carl had a great speed run, but came in short as did Keith.Word is that Marc Fink won the spot landing contest, but Pete looked pretty close to me. No matter who was closest to the spot, everyone had a great time. After flying there was a big bonfire, hot dogs, and beer to celebrate a beautiful day spent flying and hanging with good friends. Thanks to Eric and Ashley for putting together a fun time. Check out Eric’s video:
